Yum wont update after upgrade from f16 to f17

Hi,
I have recently upgraded from f16 to f17, now my yum won't update. Here is there error message I get.

Code:
shane@fedora ~ $ sudo yum -y update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit, tidy-cache, yum-fast-
              : downloader
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/yum", line 29, in <module>
    yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 319, in user_main
    errcode = main(args)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 144, in main
    result, resultmsgs = base.doCommands()
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 485, in doCommands
    return self.yum_cli_commands[self.basecmd].doCommand(self, self.basecmd, self.extcmds)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yumcommands.py", line 405, in doCommand
    return base.updatePkgs(extcmds, update_to=(basecmd == 'update-to'))
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 890, in updatePkgs
    self.update()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 4364, in update
    updates = self.up.getUpdatesTuples()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 1032, in <lambda>
    up = property(fget=lambda self: self._getUpdates(),
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 837, in _getUpdates
    self._up = rpmUtils.updates.Updates(self.rpmdb.simplePkgList(), self.pkgSack.simplePkgList())
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 1013, in <lambda>
    pkgSack = property(fget=lambda self: self._getSacks(),
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 777, in _getSacks
    self.repos.populateSack(which=repos)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/repos.py", line 335, in populateSack
    sack._retrieve_async(repo, data)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/yumRepo.py", line 144, in _retrieve_async
    repo._retrieveMD(mydbtype, async=True, failfunc=None)
TypeError: myRetrieveMD() got an unexpected keyword argument 'async'

I hope someone is able to help me with this, I have searched and come up with nothing....Thanks
